In this group of lectures, we explore what serverless computing is and how using the computing resource as a service differs from traditional computing models.
Having an understanding of what Cloud Computing will help you gain the most from this course, so if you feel unclear on the fundamentals of cloud computing, I recommend completing our What is Cloud Computing? course first.
Following this course, you will have an understanding of what serverless computing is, how serverless computing differs from traditional computing and a high-level understanding of how code functions can be provisioned and used as a service.
Recognize and explain what serverless computing is
Recognize and explain the benefits of serverless computing
Recognize and explain the design approaches for microservices
That brings to a conclusion our What is Serverless Computing? course. And, in review, we gained an understanding of what serverless computing is, how serverless computing differs from traditional computing, and a high-level understanding of how code functions can be provisioned and used as a service. We covered the benefits of serverless computing and some common use cases for where serverless computing may hold value over traditional computing models. And, we introduced the concept of microservices and how serverless functions work with a microservice architecture. I do encourage you to do the labs that follow this course. Thank you very much for your attention. Any questions or feedback, please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
